Happy Monday  !!

postpartum workoutWeek 6 Postpartum and really getting ready to ROCK!  I am so ready to kick this workout thing into high gear but the doctor keeps telling me to slow it down  Has anyone else ever gotten antsy to get their body back after baby???

So I am on week 2 of T25 and decided to add one of my favorite workouts into the mix:  Les Mills Pump!

Last Week My Workouts Looked Like This:
Monday- Cardio
Tuesday -Speed 1.0
Wednesday- Total Body Circuit
Thursday- Burn Circuit 1 (not cleared for Ab Intervals yet)
Friday- Lower Focus & Cardio
Saturday- Rest
Sunday- Celebrity workout with Joel and Jericho from Les Mills Combat

Joel and Jericho in the HOUSE!

So Sunday when I was working out with Joel and Jericho, I thought about the amazing results I got last year doing Les Mills Pump and decided, heck it’s only 3 days a week, why not add it in!  So this week I am starting my own version of a T25/ Les Mills Pump Hybrid to maximize results and get back into those skinny jeans before the holidays!

T25 results

I have to say that I am in love with T25. It’s Beachbody’s newest home fitness program and it’s 25 minutes a day 5 days a week. The whole philosophy is that you go as hard as you can for 25 minutes and you literally just focus on giving it your all! It is a great calorie burn and in my opinion when I look at the TV and it says only 25 minutes I really feel like I can give it all I’ve got for that time frame! To me I think I actually get a better workout in 25 minutes vs a long 45 minute workout where I dog it in the beginning because I know I have a lot of time left.
I absolutely loved the Cardio workout and Speed 1.0, but Lower Focus left me SORE! 

T25 Hybrid

So now to week 2!!  This week starts my first week of the Pump/T25 hybrid.

So the plan for this week goes as follows  Week 2 Hybrid Schedule:
Monday: T25Cardio
Tuesday:  Total Body Circuit & Pump Challenge
Wednesday:  Speed 1.0
Thursday:  T25 Cardio & Pump Challenge
Friday:  Lower Focus (no ab intervals yet)
Saturday:  Pump Challenge 
Sunday:  Rest 
T25 is only 25 minutes and Pump Challenge is only 20 minutes,  so it’s easy to get both workouts in back to back. It keeps me in my routine and I honestly don’t feel burnt out.  I don’t do it every week but for the most part it keeps me on track!!!  
I also created my meal plan for the week and I’m ready to keep my calorie intake up.

One of the things that people don’t realize with a workout program is that nutrition is 80% of your results.  If you are not fueling your body 5-6 times a day with the correct foods and portion sizes you are NEVER going to get the results that you want!  I am serious when I say this.  I did 30 days of Insanity and lost 2 lbs!! Talk about devastated.  If it wasn’t for my challenge group and coach of course I would of quit.

clean eating meal plans

The one thing you should note is that I don’t count calories. In the Eat Clean Book, Tosca Reno teaches you to look at the quality of your food and then follow the guide that I gave you above with the serving sizes. This is how I operate and it has not steered me wrong yet! I have been able to lose over 30 lbs, build muscle and feel energetic and strong!!! For me, I am not a numbers person so this makes complete sense to me. You can use this meal plan and tailor it to meet your needs.

portion sizes for weight loss

The important things to remember:

  • A serving of lean protein and complex carb at each meal.
  • Stick to all water and very little coffee or tea.
  • Stay away from anything that is processed or pre packaged.
  • Limit your servings of dairy and good fats.
  • Aim to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces each and every day for proper hydration and weight loss.

If you need help with your meal planning or staying accountable then I encourage you to join my Fit through Fall challenge that will start on  OCTOBER 27TH. I have been eating clean for a year and a half and I am a wealth of knowledge and information regarding planning meals, making good choices, dealing with temptations, traveling, and feeding a family of 4 and not having to cook separate meals. So take advantage of this group and inquire about the requirements before the spots have been taken!
